Members need to inform the branch if they are attending any meetings by emailing: This will help us know when we arrange the seating and refreshments. If you are diabetic or vegetarian this information would also help for catering purposes.

Furthermore if members need revalidation certificates for their Continuous Professional Development Logs as required by NMC, this can be arranged if you have pre booked.
